Natural bodybuilder meets climber.  I turned on the English subtitles w/ the CC button since my german is nonexistent.  The athlete couple had excellent physiques, but were no match to the wiry climber going up the wall and with grip strength exercises.  Some new tips and training aids (climbing grip balls!) I've never seen before.  Wonder where I can get the infrared laser gadget at 18:12.

Finished reading Antifragile.  Found that my thinking parallels a lot in the book w/ the exception of the caustic ego that fuels the author.  It would be great for those in a position to force a fragile system upon my life to adopt this book's principles of Antifragility to change the dogma of establishment that does not survive in the real world.  

If you haven't read it, the author categorizing things into three categories, Fragile, Robust (i.e. redundant kidneys), and Antifragile (i.e. immune system, muscle confusion for exercise & fitness).  

Here's the Amazon review blurb,

"Fragile things break under stress. But, according to Nassim Nicholas Taleb, there's an entire class of other things that don't simply resist stress but actually grow, strengthen, or otherwise gain from unforeseen and otherwise unwelcome stimuli. Taleb sees degrees of antifragility everywhere, from fasting, mythology, and urban planning to economic, technological, cultural, and biological systems. The wealth of radical thinking in this book astounds; the glossary alone offered more thought-provoking ideas than any other nonfiction book I read this year. That said, Antifragile is far from flawless. As comical as Taleb's rough handling of his favorite targets can be--academics, economists, and tourists, to name a few--his argumentative style boasts gaping holes, non sequiturs aplenty, and at times an almost willfully repugnant tone. Some readers will find Taleb's brashness off-putting; others will embrace it as a charismatic component of the ideas themselves. Either way, no one will finish this book unchanged. --Jason Kirk"

What can I say? Octopus are just that much cooler than fish.

It didn't even end up all that blurry. This is straight out of the camera, no fancy color correction or anything like that. Because that's how I roll.
